Is Shlomo Helbrans, the leader of Lev Tahor, a con man who uses every trick in the book to support himself and bolster his role of spiritual leader for his followers? Or is he a self-delusional quack who has a charismatic gift for sharing his delusion with others? JLBC has already exposed this man for kidnapping a child from New Milford, NJ in 1992, for which he served jail time, and which also triggered subsequent events, putting young frum children at great risk. Yet, somehow, Helbrans and his trusted aides have managed to amass millions of dollars in property and funds from the big-hearted and unwary public, and also from such renowned organizations as the Davidowitz Family Foundation. The group presents a picture of destitution to the unwary and believes that its staged performances for the media of observance of secular laws are taken seriously. They are even supported by the editors of Ami Magazine in Brooklyn.
